EASY handbag gift box

I just love making mini treat boxes or table favours. Today I am sharing this super cute mini handbag design.

Perfect to decorate wedding guest place settings, baby showers, craft fairs or any reason you would be needing a cute treat box.

I love how the Poppy parade flower stands out against the whisper white card stock. Simply change the colour of the flower to suit your colour scheme. An easy design you can mass produce in no time. Once you make one the rest will fly out.

I do have a fun step by step youtube tutorial for you to follow so you can re create these at home. Easy to batch make once you do one the rest will fly out.

I will leave measurements and scoring bellow along with a list of the products I used. Simply click the product phot to view it in my online shop.

Recent projects and catch up

Happy Sunday all. After several of my followers messaged me to see why I hadn't blogged in a while I thought I had better do a catch up and share some recent projects.

I have been creating this month, just on a lower key. Christmas time is fast approaching and I have several projects to share with you. You can find all these on my Youtube channel by following this link >>
I have as many know started a new job out in the real world and have been in training for the last three weeks or so. I love my new job but it has taken all my energy to learn the new computer system there so while my business has continued with team work and my customers my filming has taken a back seat. It may well be that my videos will just have to be less frequent but I will ALWAYS craft and always do my videos I love my channel and my followers.

So here is a few of the projects I have made in the last few weeks go on over and subscribe to my YouTube as even when I am too tired to blog I will always do videos. Have a fantastic weekend.

Vintage style Fanciful Fragrance card

A little card making on the hop today with this beautiful vintage feel card. I had a vague idea in my head what I wanted to create but really let the card unfold as I went. The stunning Fanciful Fragrance stamp set from Stampin' Up! just shouts vintage with its delicate script stamp and beautiful vintage feel perfume bottles. And it pairs up perfectly with the Pressed petals designer series paper which also eludes to a time gone by with its beautiful floral and script papers.

I do have a on the fly video tutorial where you can see my thought processes and how this card developed. I will leave links below to the products used please note this stamp set is 15% off until 10.50pm 23rd October so don't miss adding this beauty to your collection.
